Exterior work is moving along on The Prime, a 120,000-square-foot mixed-use project at 22-43 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. Progress has been gradual since our last update in September, when the 11-story building had just recently topped out. Designed by SRA Architecture + Engineering and developed by Circle F, the structure features a curtain wall composed of a contrasting mix of white and gray paneling, which his now almost complete. Ryan Serhant of The Serhant Team and Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing: New York fame is marketing the 71 residences, which feature interior design by Andres Escobar of Lemay + Escobar and will average around 900 square feet apiece.
Recent photos from along Jackson Avenue and from the elevated Court Square subway platform show 22-43 Jackson Avenue still mostly wrapped in construction netting and scaffolding, with only some portions of the envelope exposed. Installation of the glass railings has yet to be completed, and the podium’s partial glass façade has also yet to be enclosed.
The southern façade has a number of stacked balconies on the corners above the future retail podium.
The northern profile is more visually uniform in terms of the building massing and curtain wall material.
Waterproofing and installation of the opaque metal panels has reached the mechanical section atop the flat roof parapet.
The exterior hoist has been taken down, and the void where it once stood is being steadily filled in with the architectural enclosure.
The property will contain 63,956 square feet of residential space and 11,725 square feet dedicated for commercial use. Residences will range from one- to three-bedroom layouts, with prices starting at $675,000. The nearest subways are the G and 7 trains, located across the street at the Court Square station. The E and M trains are also nearby to the west at the Court Square-23rd Street station.
It looks like work on 22-43 Jackson Avenue will be completed sometime in 2021.
